Vintz Joins Executive Team to Help Tenable Scale for Next Phase of Growth
Tenable Network Security®, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring, has appointed Steve Vintz as chief financial officer. An accomplished leader in financial, operational and strategic planning for high-growth companies in the technology industry, Vintz will have a critical role in leading Tenable to its next stage of growth. Vintz will have worldwide responsibility for finance, legal, human resources, corporate communications and information technology and will report to CEO Ron Gula.
“Steve is a world class finance professional who will add incredible experience to the business and work with our executive team to position Tenable for its next stage of accelerated growth,” said Ron Gula, CEO for Tenable Network Security. “With our market-leading continuous monitoring platform and over 50 percent revenue growth this year, Tenable is well positioned to become a category leader in cybersecurity. We are early in our investment cycle so Steve’s experience scaling companies and optimizing their capital structure will be instrumental to our continued growth and long-term success.”
Vintz most recently served as executive vice president and chief financial officer of Vocus Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and PR software, from 2001 until its sale in June 2014. There he helped position the company to achieve 40 consecutive quarters of revenue growth and led Vocus through a period of rapid expansion including an initial public offering, a follow-on offering and several acquisitions.
Previously, Vintz was vice president of strategic planning and analysis at Snyder Communications, a NYSE listed advertising and marketing services company. Steve played a key role in the execution and integration of over 45 acquisitions and oversaw growth from $86 million to nearly $1 billion in revenue.
“I think Tenable is one of the most exciting stories in technology today and I am very happy to be a part of it,” said Vintz. “Tenable’s continuous monitoring platform is helping organizations across all sectors meet their toughest cybersecurity challenges, from retail to financial services, health care, manufacturing, energy, education and government. We have a huge opportunity to scale the company and create a global footprint to address the growing demand in the market. I look forward to working with the team to take Tenable to the next level.”
Tenable’s momentum is reflected by numerous industry accolades in 2014. The company won a Red Herring Top 100 North America award, which honors the year’s most promising private technology ventures. Tenable’s SecurityCenter CV was named Best Vulnerability Management Solution at the SC Magazine Awards Europe conference this year, and the product also received a five-star review from SC Magazine earlier in the year, calling the product “The standard by which other solutions should measure themselves.”
